KEMPTON & NEWCASTLE | 3 Value Picks to consider for Saturday’s racing on ITV Racing

The team have picked out three runners to consider for the weekend’s action at Kempton & Newcastle



The weekend is upon us, with another cracking Saturday afternoon of racing on offer on ITV.

The coverage gets underway with a 2m4½f Handicap Chase at Kempton at 1:15 and concludes with the Grade 3 Coral Trophy Handicap Chase at 3:37.

Our team have taken a look through the schedule, in hope of pinning down some value across the contests.

Here are three value picks to consider for Saturday’s ITV Racing coverage at Kempton and Newcastle.

MILLERS BANK – 2:25 KEMPTON (9/2 – William Hill)

While his inconsistency is a slight worry, Millers Bank could well be overpriced for the Grade 2 Pendil Novices’ Chase.

Alex Hales’ recruit made a winning start over fences back in October, before falling in back-to-back Grade 2 contests.

He showed promise over the small obstacles and it could well be worth taking one more chance on the eight-year-old here, with his price of 9/2 currently holding some value in the five-runner field.

ICEO – 3:00 KEMPTON (6/1 – Various)

Under the guidance of Paul Nicholls, Iceo could be one to watch in the Dovecote Novices’ Hurdle.

The four-year-old won comfortably on his first start on British soil back in December, recording a 17-length victory over C&D.

The gelding may have needed the run in Graded company last time out and he could well hint at each-way value in this contest at 6/1.

LAKE VIEW LAD – 3:15 NEWCASTLE (20/1 – Betfair + Paddy Power)

Still ploughing on at the grand age of 12, Lake View Lad could run well at a cracking price in the Eider Handicap Chase at Newcastle.

Neil Alexander’s recruit has slipped down the ratings as of late and he is now 12lbs below his last winning mark.

The son of Oscar finished seventh in the Scottish Grand National last season when 13lbs higher in the ratings, so he could well produce a big effort at eye-catching odds of 20/1.
